Ihram: Can I Wear Stitched Footgear, Belts, or a Backpack?
  • Question:

    According to the Hanafi madhab, while in ihram, can one wear stitched sandals as long as the bone on top of the foot is exposed? Also, how about carrying stitched back packs and money belts?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    [1] Yes, it is permitted to wear stitched footwear as long as the middle bone (where the shoelace is normally tied) is left uncovered. Footwear is not included in the general prohibition of wearing clothing.

    [2] Yes, it is permitted to wear belts, and bags to carry your money or possessions in.

    And Allah knows best.
